We’re often asked about corset making.
Let’s draft together the pattern of this small corset with vertical cuts and shoulder straps.
Start from a basic block with zero ease allowance and darts.
On front, draw the underbust line and widen the dart by 1cm on each side.
Widen also the shoulder dart.
On back, draw the neckline and two vertical cuts.
On both back and front curve the side seams inwards.
Draw the necklines, armholes and all the cuts as you see in the photo.
Redraw the front waist dart slanted.
Trace the separate pieces and close the front original darts: you should get 3 pieces for front, 3 pieces for back.
